OPI Meep Meep Meep

Two days ago, I decided to get my nails filled.  I know, I know...a lot of people are "against" acrylics.  I find that with them, my nails and hands look better.  Without them, I feel like I have "man hands" as I call them.

I knew that I wanted to try OPI's Meep Meep Meep, since it looked so pretty on another bloggers nails.  I usually don't wear reds as I do not think that red is a good color for my nails or me.  I don't even own one piece of red clothing.  But, I gave it a shot.

I'm still not sure what I think about it.  I was thinking about using one of my BM plates and stamping a design with silver.  Who knows.  I just might change the color...everyday!  For me, I'm not impressed with the color :/

BM 212 Nail Art

Today's Nail Art:

Basecoat: Wet N Wild Carribean Frost, BM 212 peacock stamped with Rimmel Midnight Blue, Wet N Wild Hallucinate for some bling and SV topcoat.

In other news, hubby saw on Craigslist last night that a lady just closed down her salon and has over 80 bottles of brand new, never used China Glaze nail polish. We hopped right on it and sent her an email.

I spoke to her this morning and she told me that they were mine if I wanted them and that she also had a nail rack that we would give me.

We are going to her house tonight to pick them up.

I am so excited. This just made my year.


So, here's the thing. I do not need 80 bottles of polish. Well, yes I do LOL but I want to have a giveaway if I get enough followers. I just don't know how to set this blog up to have one. I'll have to figure that out or ask someone. I have other brands that I would like to giveaway as well.

I don't post often because I suffer from daily chronic headaches and they keep me laid up, so when I am having somewhat of a good day, I do my nails.
I hope you can follow me, comment on what you think and see what I have to come.

Stay tuned....

Water Marbling

This is my first attempt at water marbling.  Personally, I think it looks much better in person then it does it the pictures.  My nails still need to be cleaned up a bit.  Nonetheless, I am still happy with the way it turned out.  Start to finish, it took me an hour.  That includes taping of the fingers and cleaning my fingers.  The colors I chose for this mani were:
1. Funky Fingers Platinum
2.  Orly It's Not Rocket Science
3.  Finger Paints Copper Elements
4.  Picasso's Puce
And, I used SV as my topcoat.

Semi Mini Haul

Two days ago, we traveled up to Detroit to the casino. Since we were in the area, I asked hubby if we could stop in at 5 Below. I was able to pick up:
1. Zeppelin


2. Monster Balla


3. Power Chord


4. Favorite Girl


5. Sold Out Area


6. Platinum Record


Yesterday, while we were out, the hubby asked if I wanted to go to Sally's since we were right there. :faints: Um, yea! They had so many holiday kits by Orly and China Glaze that I am going back for. I was going to get them, but thought that I should think about it first. In the meantime, I purchased Finger Paints. I am new to this brand. Anyone who uses it, I would love your feedback :) I got:
Sally's was running a special. If you purchased 3 Finger Paints, you got a clutch wallet for FREE. They had teal(which I chose), red and a black and white floral.
1. Picasso's Puce


2. Copper Elements


3. Comet's Collar


The wallet:


Last but not least, I picked up a mini bottle China Glaze...(couldn't get a good picture of it).
1. Red Ruby
A cute story. R(the hubby) and I were laying in bed before bed and I told him how I want to go back and get this and that. He said "let's pay the mortgage first before you do anything" Lol.

Sponge Mani

This was my first try at it and I impressed myself. Is it even called a sponge mani? Lol. And, I have no idea why I am holding a Sinful Colors bottle, because I used Funky Fingers Island Collection.
